Focus on Living programme

Our Focus on Living sessions are available for anyone with an incurable condition. They aim to enhance wellbeing and quality of life and give patients the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.

Carole Taylor, Coordinator of Therapeutic Services tells us more:

“The setup of the sessions is very informal and designed to make patients feel completely at ease in a confidential environment. They are a great way for patients and carers to experience first-hand the services provided here, aswell as an opportunity to access support and advice at St Oswald’s and in thewider community.”

Sessions include:

  • Fatigue Management
  • Exercise
  • Creative writing
  • Self care groups
  • Music therapy


Referral into Focus on Living sessions can be done by a health care professional or patients can self refer.
